The WA Vets Will Clinic, a nonprofit clinic that serves veterans of Washington are providing estate planning documents at no cost to veterans across the state during the month of October. There are five clinic locations statewide during the month of October.
The Clinic in Seattle will be held on Saturday October 24th from 9am-4pm at the University of Washington School of Law. Free parking is available for all veterans.
Registration for the 2015 Clinic is open at http://www.wavetswillclinic.com/sign-up (full details and disclaimers on the website). Attorneys will use the online registration to prepare draft documents. The veteran will then be scheduled for a one-hour meeting with an attorney on Saturday, October 24. Changes to the documents will be made on-site. The documents are printed, signed and notarized at the clinic. The veteran walks out with a complete set of documents at no cost. To obtain these documents privately, the average cost is $500-$1000. The majority of Washingtonians do not have estate planning documents so the clinic provides a much needed resource.
Veterans of any military branch can receive a free set of estate planning documents (a will, advance health care directive and power of attorney) on Saturday, October 24 from the Washington Veterans Will Clinic. To qualify, the veteran needs discharge papers (DD 214), proof of Washington residency and assets less than $500k ($1 mil if married; spouses are included at the clinic).
Please pass the word to any veterans you know about this great resource. For further information or questions, please contact the North Sound clinic at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-610-6355.
